A little more sarcastic
Or a little more sincerely
Am I doing it right?
I can't hold you any tighter
I can't see you very clearly
Am I doing it right?

Am I doing it right?
Thank God for little favours
All the children recite
Am I doing it right?
I thought you'd cleared me for a landing
Then you shot me down mid-flight

I'm not getting any younger
I can't stand it any longer
Am I doing it right?
I can't drink them any faster
I can't mix them any stronger
Am I doing it right?

Am I doing it right?
Thank God for little favours
All the children recite
Am I doing it right?
I thought I'd show you some compassion
But I fear you'd find it impolite

You can buy affection
But only for the length of time
You rent it for
Just remember once you've parted
That some other lonely-hearted fool
Is [something] more

Am I doing it right?
Thank God for little favours
All the children recite
Am I doing it right?
I thought I'd taken all the measurements
But I can barely face my spite
